Grow, Play, Learn with Elm Tree Early Learning Centre

Early Learning Centre

Our Philosophy

The team at Elm Tree Early Learning Centre are committed to making a positive impact on our tamariki, our local community, and the world around us.

Our dedicated and knowledgeable Kaiako are passionate, inspired, and highly experienced. They are committed to providing a safe, secure learning environment – a warm and loving home away from home where you and your child feel a part of our family, as you are at the heart of everything we do. 

We understand the trust that you place in us and celebrate the unique position that we have in supporting your hopes and aspirations for your child. We know that loving and nurturing relationships provide the anchor from which each child can feel safe to explore, discover, and learn.

Learning at Elm Tree is guided by play-based theory, with a curriculum where children are encouraged to engage in the play that interests them, and discover and enjoy learning at their own pace with the support and resources they need, so they develop a lifelong love of learning.

Elm Tree is a special place where children feel empowered to be themselves and create memories with their friends, teachers, and families as they learn and make discoveries together. 

Children are always our primary focus and our heart is in caring for them in a very respectful way.
